If You Don't Believe What You're Seeing With Michael Thomas Then Let A Familiar Friend Help You Out...
Incredibly enough, Michael Thomas' jump ball touchdown - that required an insane amount of focus and body control - might not even be the highlight of his career thus far. That might sound crazy, but Marques Colston was nicknamed 'The Quiet Storm' for a reason, and it's not because he's the type to end a 6 month social media hiatus for any old wideout based off one unbelievable catch. I know this Facebook post does nothing more than state something that's pretty obvious at this point in the season. However, if you take into consideration the fact that it's source said no more than 50 words publicly over his decade long, illustrious NFL tenure then one short proclamation about the legitimacy of Michael Thomas is basically the equivalent of full blown thesis on his potential. I don't even think Marques Colston has said that anything that nice about his own criminally underrated accomplishments in the league, and he's decides to be "vocal" about a receiver with no more than 8 games under his belt?!
If you didn't believe what you were seeing before then you can take the word of someone that started his career at a similarly skyward trajectory as gospel. I don't want to go ahead and start comparing the two players, but if there is someone who knows a young talent when he sees it then it's the guy that let all his play do all his talking since his first day of rookie camp. Marques Colston and Michael Thomas are two very unique athletes, but the instantaneous chemistry that existed between them and Drew Brees is damn near indistinguishable. The man that never needed to be told to "shut up" and the player whose personal hashtag is #shhhh. Don't tell me there's not a little symbolism there. Their presence online might "slightly" differ, but one's endorsement of the other followed by some eerily familiar humility speaks louder than this awe-inspiring snag...
